M6 has been acting very oddly for me lately. I have been working on a
particular notebook lately, about 150 MB. When I open this notebook and
execute the first line:
Mathematica crashes roughly 75% of the time. Mind you, this is the very
first command I execute, so it's not like I've imported a bunch of data or
placed any kind of load on the kernel. Sometimes M6 works normally.
Sometimes it will crash just on opening the file.
In other instances, I get the "out of memory" kernal crash. However, even
this doesn't make sense because according to Mathworks, that arises from
conflicts in Apple's 64 bit libraries with Intel processors - but I'm
running this on a 64 bit quad G5 for which Mathworks does not even support
64 bit mode. So, 32 bit software on 64 bit G5 = same crash as 64 bit
software on 32/64 bit intels? Anyway, I don't really care about the intel
problem. What I want to know is whether anyone else has had similar
problems in stability on a G5, and what they did about it? It runs fine on
my G4 laptop, by the way.
Quad PPC G5 2.5 GHz, OS X 10.4.10, 8 GB RAM.
